The Good Liar by Catherine McKenzie

This book helped me realize an important life lesson. That is, Stop Taking Books from Lending Libraries! I mean, Jesus. Why would someone put a book in a lending library? Because it's their favorite book, only they no longer have space for books because of all their kids' participation trophies? No, because it's crap, that's why. Everyone puts up these adorable little birdhouse like things in front of their houses, and just like birds, we flitter by and take whatever is offered. But it's really just a way to get rid of crap no one wants without feeling bad about filling up a landfill. If someone put their moldy leftovers in that stupid box, I guarantee people would eat it. Well I ate this leftover, and it gave me indigestion. If I start listing the reasons, I will hear it from my daughter, who thinks my reviews are "too negative in tone." But let me just give this spoiler - in this identity mystery, a woman is disguising herself by changing her name from Katelyn to Kate. I shit you not.

  1. I'm less patient than you. If a book isn't working for me, it gets tossed in the DNF. I had a lot of those. The older I get, the less inclined I am to spend time reading a book that is starting the toilet swirl.
